A Lexington dog with special needs has found a loving home thanks to Paws 4 the Cause, an animal rescue shelter.

Emmerson the German Shepherd was born with spina bifida and uses a custom wheelchair to get around.

She captured the heart of Alyssa White, who drove from Virginia to adopt the puppy she says stole her heart.
